“Inside my empty bottle I was constructing a lighthouse while all the others were making ships.”
Charles Simic

I was sitting in my office at my desk working and found myself staring in the mirror opposite me . . . at the photo I had taken this past November of Kilauea Lighthouse from Secret Beach on Kauai.  Such a serene, beautiful island.  On this day, the surf was quite high and powerful.  I am a huge fan of lighthouses, and have a small collection of them.  I suppose it’s the beacon that lights the way that attracts me . . . no matter how dark the night . . . it’s always there to guide one to safety.  There’s also something about the power of the ocean that is so calming and relaxing.  I can sit mesmerized for hours watching the waves and the birds and feel the power of Mother Nature in all her beauty.  I believe that we each carry that beauty within us to share in our own special way – we each are beacons that can shine as brightly as we allow, to inspire others around us to shine also.
